Daily Pump Trap: 4/18/13 edition

Good morning! Between April 16 and April 17, there were 9 new positions posted on C&EN Jobs. Of these, 2 (22%) were academically connected.

St. Louis, MO: BASF is looking for a QC chemist; B.S. desired, with 3 years experience. Looks like they want a local candidate, no relo offered.

Zachary, LA: BASF is looking for a QA/QC manager; 10+ years experience desired.

South Park, PA: CONSOL Energy is looking for a B.S. analytical chemist for its Coal Analysis Laboratory; 5 years experience desired. Here's an unfortunate quote:
"Responsibilities of the position include adherence to CONSOL’s Absolute Zero Safety Culture,"
Hmmm, interesting name. No literalists on the safety committee, I see.

A broader look: Monster, Careerbuilder, Indeed and show (respectively) 295, 756, 2585 and  12 positions for the search term "chemist." LinkedIn shows 108 positions for the job title "chemist", with 8 for "research chemist", 18 for "analytical chemist" and 3 for "organic chemist."
